Diply 8 Mar 2018

Have you ever tried to sneakily do something, thinking you're being slyer than a freaking fox, for it all to go either terribly wrong or to end up extremely obvious?

I refuse to believe I'm alone in this because we're all human, and we embarrass ourselves on a day to day basis.

Luckily, there are 15 others making sure we're not alone in trying to be sneaky — did they succeed? That's for you to decide!

1. The genius who thought of an unconventional way to get rid of ants.

This is the best kind of sly because finding money is one of life's greatest gifts. I think I'm going to send this to my dad as a subliminal message...maybe he'll start slipping 20s in my groceries, too!

A limit of four, but you only get this price if you buy more than the limit. Hmmm. So they didn't even give the real price?! How dare you?

"Silly customers, the prices aren't even real, muahaha!" There is one problem: what happens when said customers go to make their purchase and nothing matches the price written? Pure rage.

Forging your prof's email and telling everyone the exam is postponed? Not only is this a sly act, it's brave and funny AF. Too bad it didn't work.

In all fairness, he wasn't wrong! Megan was bound to find out eventually. Her boyfriend, on the other hand, will probably find out the hard way.

This is just ruthless. Who carries around Uno cards in their pocket all day? I guess at least it wasn't Monopoly money.
